My first roadside ordeal 2020 for the cause of vulnerable women in Kamituga in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Posted January 18, 2020

A short trip of less than 200 km (Bukavu - Kamitga) by road requires special and exceptional courage. It is necessary to combine three types of means of locomotion to get there with difficulty: a car for the first 50 km, walking for the next 15 km and the motorcycle locally known as "Bodaboda" for the rest of the km. The impassability of this road in total dilapidation constitutes a major constraint which does not facilitate the development of women and populations of Mwenga in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Hi Vero,
Thanks for your post. This is very disheartening and we pray that the Government can hear the cries of its people and invest more in infrastructure.
Have a lovely day

Hello, Veronique,

200 km is quite far, and you have presented this situation well because of the photo you uploaded. You are a good communicator. It is heartbreaking that the development of women in Mwenga is attributed to impassable roads. I hope there will be solutions to this road problem.

Thank you for sharing.
